    Lakland USA Bob Glaub in Teal - #01

    Got this last month and sent it to Mo for a gentle once over.
    I received it back from Mo a few days back (Mo is the MAN).
    Sounds and plays as good as it looks.
    All original - No more P bass GAS of any kind for me.

    If any of you awesome TB'ers have any other info on this gem, I'm all ears.
    From what I understand I am the third owner.

    Apparently this was Bob Glaub’s personal bass (photo on Lakland website) and he gave this beauty to Andrew Gold, who kept it until he passed.
    It was purchased at his estate sale. I LOVE her!!

    Mo is Maurilio Mina who helped Carey Nordstrand build some of the best basses in the world. He remembers this one - #180. He now runs his own shop near Carey. One of the best and nicest luthiers around!

    Just so we are clear, you are playing Bob Glaub numero uno into a Meatsmoke, through a Bergantino NV610? drooldrooldrool

    Congrats, but you only treated the symptoms of GAS not the disease itself.
